Displaying Details of Process Step Handling

In this view detailed information is displayed for each process step. The view shows the data structure for a process step at compilation time. After selecting a process step, specific information from the Job queue is mapped as well as each parameter of the selected process step with its values.

To display details of the process step handling

  • Select a process step and select View | Process step from the menu.

Selection of a process step and its parameters.

Displays a column from the Jobqueue table and the value.

Displays a process step parameter and the value.

TIP: You can copy the currently selected data in the view into the clipboard with the key combination CTRL + C. The data format is column name = value.

Displaying Details of a Process Step Parameter

After selecting a process step, the passing parameters of the process step are displayed with their names and their values. If the selected node does not represent a process step, the parameter view is cleared.

To display process step parameters

  • Select a process step and select View | Parameters from the menu.

TIP: You can copy the currently selected data in the view into the clipboard with the key combination CTRL + C. The data format is column name = value.

Displaying OUT Parameters

Parameters of type "OUT" or "INOUT" are parameters that can be used by process components to output a value. This value is then available to subsequent process steps in the process and can be used as a value for IN parameters.

Job Queue Info cannot determine technically when or for which process step this parameter applies. Therefore, out parameters are added to a parameter list for a process step (marked in blue).

You cannot see the parameters in the process step view under ParamIN because this view shows the data structure of each process step at compiler time and the out parameters are created within the context of the process.

The time at which the process is loaded into Job Queue Info is important. If a parameter is overwritten several times, only the state at the time of data query is displayed.

Example:

Step 1 Out parameter: X=1
Step 2 In parameter: X=1
Value changes: X=2
Out parameter: X=2
Step 3 In parameter: X=2

If the process in Job Queue Info is loaded before step 2 is processed, the value "X=1" is shown for the out parameter in Job Queue Info. If the process is loaded after step 2 has been process, The out parameter shows the value "X=2".

You can find more detailed information about each process step and how the parameters are filled, in the One Identity Manager Service log file.

Reinstating Process Steps and Processes

The maximum number of times a process can appear in the Job queue can be limited in order to prevent mass modifications. When the limit is exceeded the process steps are set to the state "Overlimit" and can no longer be collected for processing. You can re-enable these process steps for execution.

Critical process steps that have failed are set to "Frozen". You can also re-enable these processes after correcting the error.

To re-enable process steps

  • Select the process step and select the context menu item Re-able process step.

    NOTE: Use SHIFT + SELECT or CTRL + SELECT to select and re-enabled multiple process steps.

To re-enable a process step

  • Select the process step and select the context menu item Restart process.

    IMPORTANT: All process step are handled again if you restart the process. All previously handled processes up to the the point at which the error occurred are run again. This can lead to data inconsistencies in certain circumstances.

Sometimes a rerun of the failed process step is not desired. This might occur when the action to be carried out by the process has been carried out manually, for example, an expected directory has been manually added in the meantime. Even so, it may just happen that the process should be rerun even though the error has not been fixed, for example, for a rollback of already processed steps. In this case, to continue with the process, the next process step in the success or failure branch can be handled.

To run the subsequent process step

  • Select the failed process step and, in the context menu, select End with success or End with error.

    NOTE: Both entries are only visible if there is a success/failure successor and the process step is in the "Frozen" state.

    NOTE: Use SHIFT + SELECT or CTRL + SELECT to select multiple process step to continue process handling.
